Title: The Dream Of The Red Chamber 金玉良緣紅樓夢 Year: 1977 Director: Li Han-hsiang 李翰祥 Casts: Brigitte Lin 林青霞, Syvia Chang 張艾嘉, Deborah 狄波拉, Michelle Mei Suet 米雪 "Awards: Golden Horse Awards (1978-15th): Best Art Direction (Chen Ching-shen), The 24th Asian Film Festival: Best Costume Design; Best Art Direction " Three classic screen beauties in a classic love story, Li Han-hsiang's adaptation of Qing Dynasty novel The Dream Of The Red Chamber will take viewers to the heightened pleasures of love and the despairing depths of betrayal. Timeless beauty Brigitte Lin Ching-hsia appears in her first ever gender-bending role here as Chia Pao-yu, a shallow and callow youth who fritters his time away. All that changes when his cousin Lin Tai-yu (Sylvia Chang) comes to live with his family. He spends his time pursuing his cousin and both quickly fall in love. Their idyll is disturbed when another cousin, Pao-chai (Michelle Mei Suet), comes to stay. The family starts plotting for a wedding between Pao-yu and Pao-chai. When Tai-yu learns of this, she dies of a broken heart. Crushed by her death, Pao-yu becomes a monk.
林青霞是個大美人，反串了還是大美人！此部片原先導演屬意由林青霞扮演林黛玉，但，發現林青霞比張艾嘉明顯個頭高，一位168、一位161，於是來個大逆轉⋯也順勢開展林青霞能夠帥氣、英氣詮釋男角的第一彈，例如爾後的刀馬旦與東方不敗等。 她在揭破騙婚和哭祭黛玉兩場戲，搥胸、頓足、呼天搶地的叫喊，或低首含淚、憤怨飲恨等各種形態，皆演來悲愴纏綿、扣人心弦！ 小編又戀愛了，林青霞真的是太帥了！ #越劇 #黃梅調 #林青霞 #張艾嘉 #紅樓夢

The folk dance drama "A Dream of Red Mansions" is jointly produced by Jiangsu Centre for the Performing Arts and Nanjing National Orchestra. From the perspective of Jia Baoyu, the audience is invited to enter the dreamland, following the main line of the protagonist's love tragedy, and experiencing the prosperity and overthrow of a generation of families immersively.
Since time immemorial, his heart has belonged to one woman, the poet Dai Yu. But faced with his family’s mounting debts, the nobleman Bao Yu is forced to choose — between love and money. A literary romance bursts into life with “Dream of the Red Chamber,” the blockbuster opera from writer-composer Bright Sheng and Tony-winning playwright David Henry Hwang. Tenor Konu Kim stars as Bao Yu, a starry-eyed young man caught between responsibility and a desire he cannot shake — one that transcends the ages. He leads a cast including Meigui Zhang as the poet Dai Yu, Hongni Wu as the wealthy heiress Bao Chai and Hyona Kim as Lady Wang, the head of the Jia family. Featuring designs from Oscar winner Tim Yip, “Dream of the Red Chamber” returns to San Francisco Opera on June 14, 2022. Tickets are on sale now: sfopera.com/redchamber

Like fanpage Hồng Lâu Mộng để nghiên cứu sâu về HLM nhé các bạn 🤍 Hồng lâu mộng (Trung văn giản thể: 红楼梦; Trung văn phồn thể: 紅樓夢; bính âm: Hóng lóu mèng) là bộ phim truyền hình do Đài truyền hình trung ương Trung Quốc sản xuất căn cứ vào tiểu thuyết cùng tên của nhà văn Tào Tuyết Cần, khởi quay năm 1984, hoàn thành và công chiếu năm 1987. Các nhà biên kịch đã căn cứ vào ý kiến của nhà Hồng học Chu Nhữ Xương, quyết định không theo 40 hồi tục biên của Cao Ngạc mà tiến hành cải biên phần kết để làm cho câu chuyện triệt để bi kịch. Kịch bản bộ phim do nhiều nhà hoạt động văn nghệ nổi tiếng như Khải Công, Thẩm Tòng Văn, Vương Côn Luân đảm nhiệm cố vấn, khâu tuyển chọn diễn viên diễn ra trên quy mô toàn quốc, chỉ riêng vai diễn Lâm Đại Ngọc đã thu hút hơn ba vạn người tham gia dự tuyển. Đoàn làm phim đã tiến hành xây dựng khu Đại Quan Viên ở phía tây nam thành phố Bắc Kinh làm phim trường chính, lấy bối cảnh từ nhiều danh thắng như Hoàng Sơn, Trường Giang, Tô Châu Viên Lâm, các diễn viên đều được huấn luyện về Hồng học cũng như nghệ thuật thi, ca, nhạc, hoạ bởi các chuyên gia tên tuổi. Bộ phim sau đó đã thành công ngoài sức tưởng tượng của các nhà sản xuất, nhiều ca khúc trong phim như Uổng ngưng my, Táng hoa từ đã được phổ biến hết sức rộng rãi. Tuy nhiên cái kết trong phim cũng đã gây ra những cuộc tranh luận gay gắt vì không theo 40 hồi tục biên của Cao Ngạc.

The Dream of the Red Chamber by Xueqin Cao Book I, chapter 1 - 34. FULL Audiobook📖 The Dream of the Red Chamber (also known as The Story of the Stone) is one of the Four Great Classical Novels of China, and considered the greatest of them all. Almost 40 main characters and some 500 minor characters tell the fortunes of the Chia family; the book details mainly the life of Chia Pao-yü, the heir apparent, who is described as very intelligent, but also as carefree and self-indulging. The already wealthy Chia family rises to new heights when Pao-yü's elder sister becomes an imperial consort. On her first visit home, a lush garden is built, where much of the rest of the story takes place. The intrigues surrounding Pao-yü and his cousins, especially Lin Tai-yü who he loves, and Hsüeh Pao-ch'ai who he is finally tricked into marrying, make up a large part of the story. The decline of the Chia family begins with the death of the imperial consort, and when they fall into disfavour with the emperor, their mansions and the garden are eventually destroyed. The whole book has 120 chapters, only 80 of which were written by Cao Xueqin before his death in 1764. Cheng Weiyuan and Gao E claimed to have access to Cao's papers, and published what is now known as the Cheng-Gao version in 1791. Henry Bencraft Joly translated only part of the book written by Cao. Book I contains the first 24 chapters, Book II ends abruptly with chapter 56; a Book III was never published. #growup #audiobook #freeaudiobooks
